The Next Learning Landscape

Congratulations to David Tosh and Ben Werdmuller on the launch of a new release of their Elgg web app. They've polished and simplified the interface across the board and added new administrative functions (among other enhancements).

The potential for this learning landscape stuff is great -- I could see community groups, homeschool associations, wine clubs, schools, distributed project teams, and research groups (etc, etc) of all kinds getting huge value out of this combination of social software, file storage/sharing, and flexible permissions. It'll be exciting to see how it develops in the next year or two.
